    Thanks for figuring out that minor link change, strange mistake they made, and stranger that they still haven't seemed to get around to fixing it. Does anyone who has this installed notice any changes (improvements/regressions)? I just installed, and it seems to be no different from 12.6.

    it's built upon the same 8.98 stream as 12.6 so apart from maybe 1%-2% performance increase in some areas lol that's if there are any, the only upgrades are the No more xserver 1.12 crash for amd64 and patches for kernel 3.4 lol So unless you really like to be up to date it's no different than 12.6 lol or if ofc you have xserver 1.12 or want 3.4 kernel however for me it seems as though the animations are a tad faster not very noticeable though lol

    There's nothing besides a few fixes as they have been working on the 9.00 branch for quite some time now. Hopefully coming next month.

    Default shamefull

    I was looking for support for more recent stable kernel versions also.
    They can do this in an agnostic way which doesn't require editing their headers/source everytime the version number changes.
    I guess they feel they need to "validate" support on a case by case basis as budgets permit ?
